Summaries for ADAT3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAT3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a subunit of a tRNA-specific adenosine deaminase. This heterodimeric enzyme converts adenosine to inosine in the tRNA anticodon. A mutation in this gene causes a syndrome characterized by intellectual disability and strabismus. This gene shares its 5' exon with the overlapping gene, secretory carrier membrane protein 4 (Gene ID: 113178). [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2016]

  • Mental retardation, autosomal recessive 36 (MRT36) [MIM:615286]: A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. MRT36 is often associated with esotropia and failure to thrive. Other more variable features included microcephaly, hypotonia, and mild brain abnormalities on MRI, such as dilated ventricles or delayed myelination. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23620220}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
